Date / Time – Event Information
14 Sep 2021 - 16 Sep 2021
Solent Cruise in Company
14th to 16th September 2021
As the Annual Regatta was moved from May to September and to co-ordinate the end of the cruise with the Commodore’s Dinner at the Royal Yacht Squadron it has been necessary to reduce the length of the Solent Cruise. It is hoped that after so many restrictions many members will take advantage to join this event either by boat or just to take part in the social events.
The following is the new itinerary:
Tuesday 14th September
Fleet gathers in Bembridge. HW Bembridge 1755(Neaps -1).
Berths have been provisionally booked but the marina layout has changed since we last visited with finger berths for all but the largest boats. Boats 50ft and longer will be allocated an alongside berth. Please complete the booking form below but it is now necessary for individual boats to contact the marina direct to confirm their size and requirements at least 14 days prior to the event.
Evening barbeque. Gas barbeques and a marquee with picnic benches have been booked. This will be a very casual event and members should provide their own food and drink.
Payment for hire of the barbeque and marquee will be divided amongst those attending and paid in cash on the day (total cost is £90 and share will depend on numbers attending).
Wednesday 15th September
Depart Bembridge for Lymington. HW Bembridge 0645 (Neaps)
